too cold hat

I’m really loving this Winter Blues hat by Brook Taylor. New York is a rough place to be in the winter and this kind of sums up how I’m feeling these days. Also, I might have lost my favorite hat at a holiday party last night? I’m not sure. I guess it would be handy to have more than one hat around, just in case.

>> Madelinetosh yarns were featured in some Calvin Klein knits! So cool! You know I will always be a die hard Madtosh fan.

>> If you wear clothes, you should watch this amazing series by NPR. If you make clothes, you should watch this amazing series by NPR. Watch this amazing series by NPR!

>>  Clara Parkes’ advice on sweater longevity appeared in Esquire of all places! Softer sweaters wear out faster, but we knitters know all about that! Sometimes enduring the itch is worth it.

>> This has nothing to do with knitting but it made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants. Even after watching three times.

>> I’m really intrigued by Ysolda’s new choose-your-own adventure mystery KAL. I’ve never participated in a mystery knit-a-long before (I don’t like surprises, I am no fun) but this concept really makes me want to join in. Hmmmm!

Surprise, surprise, I have a ton of holiday gifts that are not finished so I’ll be stepping away a bit next week. Hope you don’t miss me too much! I’ll be back with a bunch of fun stuff. I’m finally getting started on some fun projects and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!

Any gifts left to knit? What are your holiday plans?

    Ahhh that hat is the best! I’ve (wisely?) not planned any holiday knitting this year, but am at a loss what to knit next… Definitely considering the Ysolda knit along. Seems like it would be a good brain-occupying activity for what is otherwise a very troublesome month (I always fear January). Has she specified weight/yardage? I welcome any excuse to buy yarn!

      The weight and yardage is up on the Rav page with a few recommendations. I definitely don’t have it in my stash so I guess I have to buy! What a shame 😉

    Hah! I fuckin love that hat! Wish I was a better knitter, I would absolutely buy the pattern! And that video is awesome, really made me laugh, thanks for sharing!
